Snowdonia FAQs

  • What is the best month to visit Snowdonia?

When you decide to visit any of our Snowdonia cottages ultimately depends on what you want to do with your time here. The region is stunning all year round, with some seasons providing better weather for outdoor activities.

If you’re looking to spend most of your time exploring Snowdonia’s wilderness, anytime between June and August is great for warmer weather and plenty of sunshine. However, spring, autumn and winter also provide a beautiful time to go here, especially if you prefer cooler weather and a chance of snow!

  • How many days do you need in Snowdonia?

Much like deciding the best time to visit Snowdonia, knowing how long to stay here also depends on what you’re looking to do. To see the top sights and explore popular tourist spots, 3 days should be enough. However, if you want to investigate all that the region has to offer, whilst taking part in its excellent outdoor activities, one week should allow you enough time to do so.

  • Is Snowdon easy to climb?

Sitting at an impressive 1,085 metres, Mount Snowdon can be quite the challenge. However, with the right weather, gear and knowledge, many people come here to conquer the mountain each year. Just make sure you've got a comfortable Snowdonia holiday cottage to return to afterwards! For those who don’t feel like scaling to the top of Snowdon, you can hop on the mountain’s railway. This allows you to take in all the incredible views whilst in the comfort of your seat.
